Dr. Silverman is clear and easy to follow, and I appreciated the many suggested readings that were available online from various institutions. As with any good introduction/overview, it left me more interested and wanting to study the subject in more depth.

I thought that this was an excellent introduction to Ancient Egypt. I give a talk once or twice a week to 6th grade students at the Field Museum and this gave me new ideas on how to present my materiel in an interesting way. I truly enjoyed this class.

Great to have such a course! The course does not only focus on texts but also shows a lot of pictures and gives many insights into the collection of the Penn Museum. One can see that a lot of effort was put into this course. Thank you for that!

This course was interesting and easy to follow. I had no prior knowledge of Ancient Egyptian culture or history but now have some concept of how the culture changed over time and general trends in the historical periods. Thank you Dr. Silverman!

I really enjoyed the course. I gave a great overview of the subject matter as which allowed the student to obtain much more information that just a high level overviews. The companion book and suggested additional reading were quite interesting.

Un curso interactivo muy rico en contenido. Las explicaciones del Dr Silverman son muy claras y fáciles de entender. Recomendaría que los vídeos fueran mas largos en vez de varios vídeos pequeños pues es mas cómodo. Un curso muy recomendable.

still remember things from the course over a year after I completed it! I did not know I could leave a review then, so doing so now. I visited the Egyptian part of the British Museum and was able to understand it all much better!

This course provided valuable information I needed for book research. The lecturing was delivered pretty deadpan and the transcript was not always correct, but otherwise it was good. I learned a lot. Would highly recommend the class!

Prof. David Silverman does an excellent job from his museum at UPenn to bring to life the ancient Egyptian civilization, myth, history, and culture. I would highly recommend this terse course to anyone interested in the subject.

Excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I am history hobbyist who has focussed my reading on Republican Roame and the early empire, so taking this course was a great way for me to begin to learn about a different culture's history.

Very in-depth without being overbearing. The most visually stimulating and appealing course I have seen to date. The ability of the course to draw on the artifacts in their possession gives this course a bump on the others.

Very interesting course. I think it's a great place to start your journey through human history. The course is not too fast paced, provides subtitles and is generally easy to understand. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
